Beats X

 

Beats X review: Bluetooth earphones, with Apple's iPhone-loving W1 chip for a smoother wireless ride.

Great general wireless performance ; Extra easy for iPhone owners ; Fun sound

Unrefined upper mids ; Not that detailed

iPhone owners will find the Beats X a dream to use, but you can get better sound at the price.

Beats X: the best neckband earphones money can buy?

 

Apple's W1 chip comes to these fashionable neckband headphones - they're not for running, though

Super sound quality ; W1 pairing is ace ; They don't tangle

The neckband bounces around everywhere

Beats X review

 

Energetic and full - as you'd expect from Beats - but you can get better at this price

Great wireless performance ; iPhone-tailored hardware ; Smart, simple look ; Energetic sound

Limited detail ; Shouty midrange

A fine Bluetooth performance, but the Xs' energetic delivery lacks insight

Beats X headphones review: Bass marks the spot

 

Big bass as you'd expect ; Comfortable fit with multiple tips ; Quick charge feature is great ; W1 chip connectivity is super easy ; Bluetooth range is great

Awkward fit with shirt collar ; Lightning charger means Apple focus ; Bass might drown things ; Magnetised fit out of ear doesn't stop the music

The Beats X headphones offer all the cool connectivity functionality of the Apple AirPods in a more conventional form factor.

Beats EP review

 

A solid offering for the price

Affordable price tag ; Solid sound for the price ; Cool, comfortable design

Headphone arms don’t fold down ; No wireless option ; Excessively long cable

The Beats EP are Beats headphones for the masses. Offering a more balanced sound and cheaper price tag than their big brothers, they appeal while still offering that iconic logo that’s so coveted by many. They’re not perfect, but for the price they’re...

Beats X Wireless Earphones review

 

Meet some good-sounding earbuds that can charge in five minutes

Snug, but comfortable, fit ; Quick Charge feature ; Balanced sound signature

Relatively expensive ; Lacking in clarity

The BeatsX are a solid pair of in-ear headphones. They might not have the highest clarity of any earbuds we’ve ever met, but that’s something they make up for with supreme comfort, smart iOS integration and a surprisingly effective Quick Charge feature.

BeatsX review: Hey, AirPods, it's OK to have wires

 

The BeatsX is an appealing neckband-style headphone that offers a lot of the "magic" of Apple's AirPods in a more conventional wireless headphone design that's also sports friendly.

The BeatsX is a comfortable, lightweight, water-resistant, neckband-style Bluetooth headphone with a secure in-ear fit and good sound quality. It pairs instantly with Apple devices, rolls up to fit in an included carrying case, and charges quickly via...

Slight treble push; cords may seem a bit long for some users.

The slickly designed BeatsX is an appealing neckband-style wireless headphone that offers a lot of the "magic" of Apple's AirPods in a more conventional, sports-friendly design.

Beats EP review

 

Beats makes plenty of headphones with sky-high prices, but its entry-level EP headphone is a surprisingly good value. The list price is $100, £90 and AU$140, but you can find it online in the US and UK for about a third off -- closer to $70 and £60.The...

Reinforced with stainless steel, the affordable Beats Ep is sturdily built and sounds good for the money. It's relatively comfortable for an on-ear model and includes an inline microphone for calls.

Doesn't fold up or fold flat; on-ear design has its downsides (clamps down on your ears).

The Beats EP may be a simple, wired, on-ear headphone, but it's arguably Beats' best headphone for the money.

Beats EP, a Beats headphone an audiophile could love

 

Could it be true? Beats makes a headphone for the audiophile crowd? The Audiophiliac thinks so!

BeatsX review: The best Beats, or the worst?

 

Beats headphones have always divided opinion, and in this sense BeatsX are the most “Beats-like” yet

After my first listen, I was prepared to bury the BeatsX under a hailstorm of criticism. Yet after using them for a couple of weeks, they’ve become my headphones of choice. Yes, I would prefer it if the sound was a better, although for the majority of...
